The XKCD Guide to the Universe’s Most Bizarre Physics

Is Randall doing articles for Wired now?

Makes me think of XKCD 1264.

Unless the first two frames are the same and the rest are all black none of my 3 browsers can display it properly.
Only with scripts all off it starts to make sense.

Odd. I had to switch to a browser with scripts turned off.

Also missing, higher dimensions of time. Whether on not they exist, they are easy to understand as alternatives histories/universes/etc.

The Wired article looks like a prelude to the -really- bizarre physics. Another book in the works? I'd buy it!
We're in the traffic-chopper over the XKCD boards where there's been a thread-derailment. A Liquified Godwin spill has evacuated threads in a fourty-post radius of the accident, Lolcats and TVTropes have broken free of their containers. It is believed that the Point has perished.
